Okay I have a small problem. I'm using CS6, and when I make a new shape or duplicate the layer, all the layers below the new layer become unviewable in mass.

Is the newly created layer opaque? In which step you encountered this problem?

Thanks, it's quite useful. But i'm kinda having problems. I'm using Photoshop CS2. When I created the circle, I adjusted the parameter as you said, but nothing seems to come out. I also already changed the fill opacity to 0% yet what comes out is nothing, just the blank ellipse. Am I doing something wrong?

If you click on edit and scroll down, there should be something called "Transform". In Transform there are different options, one of them is changing the perspective ^ w ^

Hope this helps~
